Slab is a simple, beautiful, and powerful team wiki built for the modern web. It features an intuitive editor, blazing fast search, and numerous integrations, like Slack, Github and GSuite, to tie everything together.
Fast, Intuitive, Simple. Powerful integration with Slack and GDocsCons:
Still new, compliance roadmap unknown
We have used Slab since it was in private beta. It's been very helpful for us as we grow and scale the company. For us, as an enterprise startup focused on lengthly sales cycles and deep esoteric knowledge, we knew we needed a great product for us to document a lot of learnings.
Slab has been a product that everyone in the company has used, and uses without many questions or much on-boarding effort. It's been critical for us to scale knowledge and the ease at which we've managed to capture it has yielded so much as we continue to grow and add people.
Highly recommended.adrian sanders has used this product for one year.
Lightweight in all the ways you want it to be, easiest to use wiki I've encountered. Search is powerful w/ integration into linked documentsCons:
Still a bit feature light, works best for content without a lot of visuals. Would benefit from more customization options
Slab is a simple, but very well designed wiki with a clear sense of purpose: it wants to tie together all the places your team currently stores information to become a single source of knowledge for the entire organization. The result is a wiki that lacks some of the visual niceties and tat of some other solutions, but which makes up for it in sheer usability.
They're threading a needle here. It feels simple and doesn't impose itself at all on your writing process, but it also subtly ensures that you're keeping everything well organized and referenceable by the whole org. That's a stark contrast to systems like Confluence, which are potentially very powerful if used correctly but using where using them "correctly" imposes such an additional upkeep burden they hardly get used at all.
Ultimately, a wiki is only as useful as the amount of infomation it contains. Slab is one of the few I've seen that my team actually seems to like to use. That's a winner today in my book, and I'm very eager to see what else they add as it develops.Jon Xavier has used this product for one month.
